A little podenco looking for a forever home.
About three years old, she was used as a hunting dog, beaten quite regularly. Then she got her hind leg caught in a trap. so her owner tried to cut the leg off with ‘scissors’.
Releasing her to a life on the streets, she was knocked down and injured further. Luckily she was found and taken in by a rescue association, who operated on her leg, to be cared for in a foster home.
She was so traumatised by now that she didn’t make a single sound, or move at all.
She was like a statue, where she was placed she stayed, completely immobile. If she did move, she did so on her two front paws, as her remaining hind leg was paralysed from the beatings.
After many months with devoted care in her foster home, she can now run and jump, loves to play with other dogs and loves people.
Because she has been through so much, she needs to go straight to a forever home, rather than being fostered again.
